The word "hostel" means a supervised lodging for travelers. Sometimes the group will stay in local

quartered at Camp Weed, an Episcopalian camp located east of Live Oak. There are many Elder Hostel

Recently an Elder Hostel
birding group visited PCS
in White Springs to observe
the wide variety of bird life
that have established them-
selves here more than 250
species were sighted at one
of the recent Audubon So-
ciety-sponsored Christmas

Haven Hospice of North
Central Florida, 4200
NW 90th Blvd. The
meeting will commence
with an open session at

budsmen whose goal is
to improve the quality
of life and care of resi-
dents of long-term care
facilities, including
nursing homes, assisted
living facilities, adult
family care homes, and
skilled nursing units in
area hospitals. An om-
budsman is a specially
trained and certified

nor and given authority
under federal and state
law to'identify, investi-
gate and resolve com-
plaints made by, or on


behalf of, long-term care
facility residents. The

New carbon market opportunities


for Florida agriculture


Submitted
Some Florida farmers,
ranchers and private for-
est owners may be able
to capitalize on a new
partnership between the
state's largest general
agricultural organization
and the nation's leading
supplier of carbon credit
aggregation services to
agriculture.
The Florida Farm Bu-
reau Federation and
AgraGate Climate Cred-
its Corp. have agreed to
partner in providing car-
bon credits services to
farmers, ranchers and
private forest owners.
Those interested in
learning more can at-
tend one of three meet-
ings being held this
month in north Florida.
Producers with contin-
uously no-tilled fields
and newly established
grasslands, managed re-
forestation or new plant-
ings on forested lane,
and on-farm methane
digesters can earn cred-
its based on the amount
of carbon sequestered by
their agricultural prac-
tices. Producers can then
sell these carbon credits,
also called offsets, to
utilities, manufacturing
companies and others
who want to offset their


carbon emissions.
As a contract facilita-
tor, the Florida Farm Bu-
reau will assist
landowners in register-
ing eligible properties
and practices for carbon
credits. AgraGate, a sub-
sidiary of the Iowa Farm
Bureau, collects credits
from individual farmers
and ranchers and com-
bines the credits into siz-
able pools. The carbon
credits are sold on the
Chicago Climate Ex-
change (CCX), with the
proceeds returned to the
agricultural producers.
"We're pleased that
the Florida Farm Bureau
Federation has agreed to
work with us as we ag-
gregate carbon credits
from farmers and ranch-
ers in the state," said
Dave Krog, chief execu-
tive of AgraGate. "The
market for carbon cred-


its offers farmers, ranch-
ers and private forest
owners a brand new
revenue opportunity. It's
important to partner
with people who have
significant experience in
the state so they can
help explain both the
opportunities and the
risks involved in the
program."
"We are always look-
ing for new ways to
help keep Florida's agri-
cultural producers prof-
itable. Giving them ac-
cess to a voluntary mar-
ket that will compensate
them for their environ-
mentally friendly prac-
tices is clearly a good
thing, and it's something
we are proud of promot-
ing," said John Hoblick,
president of Florida
Farm Bureau Federation.
"There will continue to
be opportunities for


Florida agriculture to
produce alternative ener-
gy and provide addition-
al environmental bene-
fits. We look forward to
working with AgraGate,
the CCX, and the Uni-
versity of Florida-IFAS.

ley at 352-378-8100, ext.

Volunteer Opportunity. Listing


Florida's Long-Term
Care Ombudsman Pro-
gram needs volunteers
to join its corps of dedi-
cated advocates who
protect the rights of el-
ders residing in nursing
homes, assisted living
facilities and adult fami-
ly care homes. The pro-


gram is comprised of 17
local councils through-
out the state, and each
council is seeking addi-
tional volunteers to
identify, investigate and
resolve residents' con-
cerns. All interested in-
dividuals who care
about protecting the


health, safety, welfare
and rights of long-term
care facility residents
who often have no one
else to advocate for
them are encouraged to

Education. I am a mem-
ber of the Golden Key
National Honor Society.
In addition to these
milestones, I have taken
and passed the Florida
Teacher's Certification
Exam K-6 with ESOL
and Reading Endorse-
ment. Knowing I could
do more about the prob-
lems within our school
system I joined the
Hamilton County High


School Improvement
Team. This year I am
chairperson. I serve on
the Panther Success
School Improvement
Team. In my free time I
am a volunteer with
Hamilton County
School Board. This year
I reviewed grants for
the University of Flori-
da's 21st Century
Schools.
I am a life long resi-
dent of Hamilton Coun-
ty. My parents are


David and Fannie Clar-
idy. My siblings are
Daniel, David, Stan,
Charles and Veronica,
all whom are graduates
of the Hamilton County
School System. I am a
single parent of four,
AJ, D'Ondra, Ebony and
Jada. One might say I
have a vested interest in
improving education
within the school sys-
tem.
If elected, my goals
are to help develop poli-


cies that are fair and '
equal to all. Policies that
give parents equal con-
trol, in guiding their
child(ren)'s education. I
hope to be a voice for
the people and County
that I serve. I would like
to see innovative use of
available resources to
prevent delinquency,
which would ensure
"No Child Left Behind."
I envision everyone
working on one accord
for our children.


Curtis seeks District 10 House seat


Continued From Page 1A

be our next state repre-
sentative for District 10.
Curtis comes from a
family with deep roots
in agriculture, recalling
the good times spent
while growing up on his
grandmother's farm and
learning values that
have made him to be an
independent conserva-
tive. He is a forester by
profession and owns a
farm in Lake Bird (Tay-
lor County) where he
cares for horses, cattle
and timber with his wife
of 28 years, Michele..
Curtis is also an avid
hunter and sportsman,
frequently fishing and
hunting with his two
sons, Ray and Clay.
Don Curtis owns The
Forestry Company, em-
ploying 20 people and
providing forestry ser-
vices to public and pri-
vate landowners in all
ten counties within
House District 10. He
understands making a
payroll, paying his tax-
es, and the rest of the
challenges to making a
business successful.
Curtis also partners
with the state Division
of Forestry to help con-
tain wildfires. He has
served as the assistant
director for the Division
of Forestry along with


being a volunteer fire-
fighter before starting
up his own business. His
past public service for
the Division of Forestry
includes overseeing
1,000 employees with
the responsibility for
managing public land,
wildfire suppression,
and emergency disaster
support.
Curtis has also felt the
sting of rising fuel
prices, but sees longer-
term opportunity for
North Florida.
"We have the land, the
water, and the know-
how to make this part of
Florida vibrant with
newer ways to secure
energy so we do not
have to depend so much
on Middle East oil," says
Curtis. "These new
sources of fuel do not re-
quire corn or other food
stock but are taken from
wood and various plant
materials. Without a
doubt, there is an enor-
mous amount of indus-
try potential that can
help a lot of families in
District 10."
When Curtis envi-
sions North Florida's
economic growth poten-
tial, he sees that a strong
connection exists be-
tween job growth and
better education. In fact,
while serving on the
board of the Aucilla


Christian Academy and
acting as an advisor
with Lake City Commu-
nity College, Curtis has
seen firsthand the issues
and challenges facing.
our young people and
the skills they need to
compete for good jobs.
Securing North Flori-
da's precious water re-
source is also a very im-
portant issue in the
coming years as Florida
has experienced record
droughts and Floridians
in the urban areas have
consistently sought our
water. Last summer,
Don Curtis was ap-
pointed by Gov. Charlie
Crist to the Governing
Board of the Suwannee
River Water Manage-
ment District. That ex-
perience has shown that
we need his leadership
in the legislature to keep
our water supplies se-
cure in this area of the
state.
Curtis' background
and experience in busi-
ness, government, and
volunteer duties 'has
prepared him to serve
the people of North
Florida. The Florida
Forestry Association
and Forest Landowners'
Association have both
endorsed Don Curtis.
Scott Jones, executive
vice president of the
FLA, most recently stat-


ed, "We are confident
Don will take his years
of experience and do
great things for the peo-
ple of Florida's 10th
house district."
Sen. Charlie Dean and
the Florida House lead-
ership have *given their
support to Curtis' candi-
dacy as well. Senator
Dean said in an earlier
release: "the choice in
the 10th House District
ultimately comes down
to judgment and integri-
ty, and in my view, Don
Curtis has an undeni-
able edge. I wholeheart-
edly endorse Don Curtis
for State House and look
forward to serving with
him in the Florida Legis-
lature."
Don Curtis wants to
give back to his commu-
nity what he has been
given and relying on
God's help with family
and community sup-
port, he hopes to serve
as our next Representa-
tive for District 10.
Don is a member of
Pleasant Grove Baptist
Church, where he teach-
es adult Sunday school.
He knows that the con-
servative, independent
leadership needed to
represent the people of
10 counties requires
practicing those teach-
ings in his everyday
walk in life.

HESRI
PRII!r-KI 1 G


S" or me, life
in White
Springs is
S" often ob-
S __ served in
'cont:i.--t to my "former
S lite in lcksonville and
.. '. other[ bi- cities around
the .a oild. Most of the
time the comparison
lighhlghts more differ-
ences than it does similarities between life here and
there.
I am glad for the differences, but now and then
there are similarities that I am grateful for too. One
similarity that has been a constant in my life since
1958 is that I live on or close to the river. In Jack-
sonville it was the St. Johns and here, of course, the
Suwannee. I learned to water ski on the St. Johns
and I fished there too as I do here on the Suwannee
along with swimming and canoeing.
This weekend I attended a gathering on the
shores of the Suwannee that reminded me how for-
tunate we are. Jacksonville and White Springs both
started off with a pristine river and we are fortu-
nate to have had a different vision for our river
than they had for theirs.
Here in our neck of the woods, the Suwannee is
still similar in many respects to what it was a hun-
dred years or more ago. Development, pollution
and other manmade influences have made the St.
Johns unhealthy and unrecognizable in comparison
to its former self, all for the sake of what some call
progress. Whenever I spend time on our Suwannee,
as I did this past weekend, I give thanks that
through the cooperative efforts of our citizens, cor-
porations and government, our river has been
largely spared from the awful side effects of Jack-
sonville's kind of progress. That doesn't mean that
there is not work to be done to preserve what we
have. The next time you are on or anywhere near
the Suwannee, enjoying it in one way or the other,
remember that in this age of environmental aware-
ness, we can and should continue to show that
good stewardship can be done and pays huge divi-
dends.
Another contrast often drawn between rural and
city life is the difference in certain cultural/educa-
tional activities. I have always maintained that we
have more cultural activities than most folks are
aware of and this column will continue to try to
highlight them for you. You might remember that
we promised to feature local authors from time to
time. Well, just like in the big city, White Springs is
having a celebration for local author, Sudye Cau-


then, in honor of h,,r award winning and
highly acclaimed bo6o Southern
Comforts, that is a 'mar-
velous blend of memoir,
history, and wisdom"
about North Florida 0
places and people. -ee 00d s,
This Sunday, June O t- W ,e Is
22, from 2 p.m. un- Sielvi6 e
til 4 p.m. a recep- I*
tion honoring our S 11 c N"
local author will sneCts L
take place at The I r
Suwannee River S or e
Yoga Studio, 16548 O0 r
Spring Street, (next to
the White Springs Fire Sta-
tion). The public is invited.
To entice you, I wanted to give an
excerpt from this wonderful book but a short out-
take just wouldn't do justice to the stories told there-
in, so let me just share an observation made by Peg-
gy Bulger, Director of the American Folklife Center,
Library of Congress. "One is drawn into the world
of Southern Comforts in images and words that pro-
pel one into another universe. Oral history has sel-
dom been used so effectively to evoke a past, a pre-
sent, and a future of a very special place on earth."

I've taken my boat several times to Lang Lake late-

sions for the property are full of hope
and promise for our town. A strong co-
operative planning effort between concerned
citizens and Town Hall is needed and will certain-
ly help to make sure that some good things happen
on that property.
Don't forget the farmer's market next Tuesday, 2
p.m. until 6 p.m. and I hope it doesn't get rained
on again bu.t thank goodness for the rain we had
last weekend. I hope it is the beginning of a return
to normal rainfall levels.
Well, once again I've said enough. Don't forget
that I would love to hear from you with your views
and news about "Life in White Springs."

20th of May 2008 Celebration


By Paula G. Williams
Memories of our fore parents
and their many sacrifices, free-
dom, new beginnings, flowers,
Maypole plaiting, dancing,
singing, great food, and any
other thoughts that may cross
your mind around this celebra-
tion, but for our community it
is a time for fellowship and
thanksgiving. This is time to
reflect on God's goodness and
what an awesome God He is.
From one year to the next we
have trials and triumphs but
we continue to pray, persevere
and PRAISE our way through.
We have seen His wonders
performed over an over again
and as a unified group, we cel-
ebrate all race, creeds, colors
and socio economic groups.
The kick-off to the celebra-
tion on May 17, was the May
Day parade. It started from the
old ESP building behind Jasper
Foodway on Martin Luther
King Drive and continued
through town on to 15th Ave.,
commencing at JRE Lee Ad-
ministrative Complex. Officer
Mike Vickers took the lead fol-
lowed by the honored parade
grand marshal, Mr. and Mrs.
SJ (Buddy) Parker who were
chauffeured by Mr. Bo Lee.
Mayor Ann Lessman and the
City Council were out to share
on this early morning along
with Hamilton High School's
ROTC, drumline and SWAT,
many church youth groups,
political candidates, bikes,
carts, Hamilton School Food
Service, and Steve Curry's In-
vestigation Service and truck-
ing companies. Spectators
looked on with glee. Upon
gathering at JRE Lee, the
drumline delighted the crowd
with their drum beats.
The program began with
Charlene Robinson serving as
the mistress of ceremony. New
Bethel AME Church's Pastor
Dove offered thanksgiving for
the group and Mayor Ann
Lessman gave a warm wel-
come to the group. J. Dia
Green enlightened the group
with the purpose while Chi-
neeta Jackson introduced the
speaker. The 2008 speaker was
Kimberly Anderson, daughter
of Janice and Lewis Vaughn
and Lenorris Anderson. Kim is
a Hamilton native and top
honor graduate from HCHS, a
FAMU graduate, and a sup-
portive citizen who constantly
returns and gives back to her
community. She currently re-
sides in Tampa.
Kim talked about her hum-
ble experiences in Jasper and
.how those experiences and the
people who influenced her life.
Her message was especially
appropriate and timely for the
audience that consisted of
many young people and the
adults who helped shape her
into a successful and produc-
tive citizen. She highlighted
several experiences as a young
student in Jasper where she
thought she could violate cer-
tain policies-but was quickly
put in "check" by adults or
teachers who lived in the com-
munity and were friends of the
family. Kim's message of op-
portunity, kids today, and the
concept of paying forward was
fitting for the occasion and the
times in which we live. She
encouraged the adults not to
give up on the children but to
consistently pray and support
them. Kim believes that, "the
most successful kids are not
necessarily the smartest, but
the ones with the best support
system." And paying forward
was her testament that we
must always give back to oth-
ers because someone gave to
us. As Ms. Anderson remi-
nisced and reflected over her
childhood, it was clear that she
knows that there is no place


like "home."
Appreciation plaques were
presented to Ms. Anderson


and the Council on Aging by
Commissioner Lewis Vaughn.
Ms. Ada Dean Curry accepted
the plaque on behalf of the par-
ticipants at the Council on Ag-
ing with many of them in at-
tendance. The support group
for the culinary committee
helped with the preparation of
the food behind the scene and
the community appreciates
them. Call on Ms. Curry and
see how the seniors may be of
assistance to you. George Cur-
ry was also the recipient of an
appreciation plaque presented
by his truck driving associa-
tion.
After Vaughn extended the
community and committee's
thanks and appreciation, Rev.


Mayor Lessman welcomes
May Day participants.

all. The bounce clowns, basket-
ball and other activities were

Owners = a good combi-
nation with a remainder
of a positive outcome.
City Council and Staff
held the first meeting
with business owners on
June 2, 2008. Local busi-
ness owners gathered in
city hall and discussed
their concerns and ideas
involving the future of
Jasper. We had approxi-
mately 33 citizens pre-
sent. Citizens were also
encouraged to let yester-
day be forgotten and
concentrate on the future
so we can collectively
make Jasper the best it
can be.
Let us all work togeth-
er and take pride in our
-community, change
what you can and pray
over what you can't. An
easy way to show this
pride is to help keep our
community clean. We
can begin by picking up
that small piece of paper
when we see it lying on
the ground. Before you


know it everyone will be
pitching in to make our
community beautiful.
You be the example of
making a positive
change. Let us all get
aboard the "train of
change." There are some
citizens that are" already
taking pride in their sur-
roundings and the city
says "THANK YOU."
We all must do our part.
The end of school is
here and you will be
spending more time in
pools, lakes and rivers.
Water safety should be a
major concern. Take
precautions to ensure the
safety of you and your
children. We certainly
don't want any tragedies
in our community. It is
also hurricane season,
hurricane hazards come
in many forms:

means it is important
for your family to
www.nhc.noaa.gov/HA
W2 / english / prepare / fa
mily_plan.shtml have a
plan that includes all of
these hazards. Look
carefully at the safety
actions associated with
each type of hurricane
hazard and prepare
your family a disaster
plan.
Are you ready to see
more "Unity in our Com-
munity?" If so, be at City
Hall on Tuesday, June
24, at 7 p.m. to discuss
ideas, strategies, etc. so
you as a citizen can be a
part of making Jasper a
safer community. Al-
ways remember that the
future comes one day at
a time.
Thomas Jefferson once
said, "I like the dreams
of the future better than
the history of the past."
My prayers are with
you and your families.

up, more families are
camping together and
outdoor family adven-
tures have become pop-
ular.
Why the newfound
interest in getting back
to nature? Experts say it
may be because being in
the outdoors together
gives a family a chance
to focus on one another
- without distractions
from cell phones, e-mail,
television and many of
the other modern "con-
veniences" in most
homes.
Another reason? It can
be easy to do and inex-
pensive. Try these tips
and ideas for fun, out-
door family outings:
The Department of
the Interior's Web site
lists national parks
across the US It also lists
rules for the parks, in-
cluding whether they
permit camping and
barbecuing. If visiting a
national park is incon-
venient, keep in mind
that a number of states
have hiking trails and
allow camping as well.
A picnic can be a fun
way to get some fresh
air and have a fun fami-
ly meal. Try getting
everyone involved by
giving specific family


members different cook-
ing assignments. Young
children, for instance,
can be in charge of the
snack foods (granola
bars, fruit, etc.) while
older children may
think it's fun to help out
with the salads. It's a
good idea to leave the
food wrapping to the
adults, though, as it's
important that food is
wrapped properly to
prevent it from spoiling.
Try taking the whole
family for a hike
through the woods. Pick
a trail that leads to wa-
ter that can make the
whole experience seem
more like an adventure.
Be sure to bring snacks
for the walk and plenty
of water for everybody.
Families are increas-
ingly looking to outdoor
activities like boating to
connect with nature and
each other. In a recent
survey, 80 percent of
boat-ownihg respon-
dents reported their
boat gave them "time to
unwind and helped
them leave the pres-
sures of everyday life
behind." Today's boats
are easy to handle and
modern navigation
equipment makes them
even safer to use.

Jasper Legals
STATE OF FLORIDA
DEPARTMENT OF
ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION
PUBLIC NOTICE OF INTENT TO
ISSUE CONSTRUCTION PERMIT

The Department of Enviionnmental Pro-
tection gives notice of its intent to issue a
permit to While Springs Agricultural
Chemicals, Inc. -Suwannooee River/Swiftll
Cieek Complex, which has a mailing ad-
dress of RO, Box 300, White Springs, FL
32096. Project No. 061- for a construction
permit that consists of the addition of a
liquid separator to the existing "A" DFP
Cooler for improved particulate matter
control. This liquid separator will be in-
stalled downstream of the existing cy-
clone and Cooler fan.
The Department has assigned file num-
ber 0470002-061-AC to this project.
The Department will accept written com-
ments concerning the proposed permit is-
suance action for a period of 14 (fourteen)
days from the date of publication of "PUB-
LIC NOTICE OF INTENT TO ISSUE
CONSTRUCTION PERMIT" Written
comments should be provided to the
Florida Department of Environmental
Protection, Northeast District Office at
7825 Baymeadows Way, Suite B-200,
Jacksonville, Florida 32256-7590. Any
written comments filed shall be made
available for public inspection. If written
comments received result in a significant
change in the proposed agency action,
the Department shall revise the proposed
permit and require, if applicable, another
Public Notice.
A person whose substantial interests are
affected by the proposed permitting deci-
sion may petition for an administrative
proceeding (hearing) under sections
120.569 and 120.57 of the Florida
Statutes. The petition must contain the in-
formation set forth below and must be
filed (received) in the Office of General
Counsel of the Department at 3900 Com-
monwealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35,
Tallahassee, Florida, 32399-3000.
Petitions filed by the permit applicant or
any of the parties listed below must be
filed within fourteen days of receipt of this
notice of intent. Petitions filed by any per-
sons other than those entitled to written
notice under section t20.60(3) of the
Florida Statutes must be filed within four-
teen days of publication of the public no-
tice or within fourteen days of receipt of
this notice of intent, whichever occurs
first. Under section 120.60(3), however,
any person who asked the Department
for notice of agency action may file a pe-
titioin fourteen days of receipt of
that notice, regardless of the date of pub-
lication. A petitioner shall mail a copy of
the petition to the applicant at the address
indicated above at the time of filing. The
failure of any person to file a petition with-
in the appropriate time period shall con-
stitute a waiver of that person's right to re-
quest an administrative determination
(hearing) under sections 120.569 and
120.57 F.S., or to intervene in this pro-
ceeding and participate as a party to it.
Any subsequent inervention will be only
at the approval of the presiding officer
upon the filing of a motion in compliance
with rule 28-106.205 of the Florida Ad-
ministrative Code.
A petition that disputes the material facts
on which the Department's action is
based must contain the following informa-
tion:
(a) The name and address of each
agency affected and each agency's file or
identification number, if known;
(b) The name, address, and telephone
number of the petitioner, the name, ad-
dress, and telephone number of the peti-
tioner's representative, if any, which shall
be the address for service purposes dur-
ing the course of the proceeding; and an
explanation of how the petitioner's sub-
stantial interests will be affected by the
agency determination;
c) A statement of how and when petition-
er received notice of the agency action or
proposed action;
(d) A statement of all disputed issues of
material fact. If there are none, the peti-
tion must so indicate;
(e) A concise statement of the ultimate
facts alleged, including the specific facts
the petitioner contends warrant reversal
or modification of the agency's proposed
action;
(f) A statement of the specific rules or
statutes the petitioner contends require
reversal or modification of the agency's
proposed action; and
(g) A statement of the relief sought by the
petitioner, stating precisely the action pe-
titioner wishes the agency to take with re-
spect to the agency's proposed action.
A petition that does not dispute the mate-
rial facts upon which the Department's
action is based shall state that no such
facts are in dispute and otherwise shall
contain the same information as set forth
above, as required by rule 28-106.301

Because the administrative hearing
process is designed to formulate final
agency action, the filing of a petition
means that the Department's final action
may be different from the position taken
by it in this notice. Persons whose sub-
stantial interests will be affected by any
such final decision of the Department on
the application have the right to petition to
become a party to the proceeding, in ac-
cordance with the requirements set forth
above.
The application is available for public in-
spection during normal business hours,
8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through
Friday, except legal holidays, at the De-
partment of Environmental Protection,
Northeast District Office, 7825 Baymead-
ows Way, Suite B200, Jacksonville, Flori-

Kidzpalooza's "Ocean Adventures" fascinates kids
of all ages with thrilling shows and interactive
activities, bringing guests closer than ever to animals
not seen at the park previously. Delight in shows such
as "Sea Lion Splash," "Shark Encounter" and "North
American Predators" and dive into the hands-on fun
of the "Sting Ray Experience" or "Wild About
Babies." Kidzpalooza runs through August 3 and is
included in park admission.
"We're bringing a whole new level of guest and
animal interaction to Wild Adventures during
Kidzpalooza," explains Bob Montgomery, Wild
Adventures general manager. "We can't wait to see
the faces of children and parents alike as they pet
sting rays for the first time, laugh at the sea lions or
get closer to a shark than ever before."
"Ocean Adventures" gives Kidzpalooza a new
maritime flavor, as salt-water creatures make the park
their home for the summer. "Sea Lion Splash"
features the comedic antics of one of the sea's most
loveable animals, as they perform daring acrobatic
feats, play games and even try to trick their trainers.
In the "Shark Encounter" guests will learn just what is
fact and what is fiction about the fearsome shark and
then watch as a diver enters the tank to try and put one
to sleep.
"Sting Ray Experience" is a hands-on activity for .
all ages, as petting and even feeding of the graceful
stingray is encouraged. And don't miss another
hands-on experience-a visit to "Hermit Castle,'.' a
kingdom of scurrying hermit crabs.
Back on dry land, the fun continues with "North
American Predators," a new show highlighting fierce
creatures found right in our own backyard. Wolves,
bears and cougars star in this show where guests will
learn about their habits and habitats.
The cast might be little, but the action is big in
"Baby Tigers 'n Toys," an inside look at how trainers
use play time to teach baby tigers how to act like big
ones. More baby fun can be found at "Wild About
Babies," a baby petting zoo featuring dozens of the
park's youngest and most adorable residents.
Even vegetables are fun this summer at Wild
Adventures. The VeggieTales "Silly Song Sing-
Along" features Bob, Larry and the whole VeggieTale
crew and encourages plenty of audience interaction.
Kidzpalooza returns to the park for its fourth and
biggest year yet. The festival runs through August 3
and is included in park admission.
Kidzpalooza's "Ocean Adventures" tops off a day
of fun at Wild Adventures with more than 50 rides,
including nine coasters; Splash Island Water Park,
hundreds of wild animals and daily shows. Regular
admission is just $45 and Junior/Senior
admission is $40. Both include a Second-
Day Free.

consider taking them donations of
clothes, household goods, furniture and
toys. All donations should be in good
condition; otherwise, they cannot sell
them. Thank you!
Volunteers are wanted and needed four
hours a week on the day of your choice.
Call to learn more. People are always
needed to hold, pet, love and walk the
homeless animals at the shelter, so if you
can't adopt you can always come help in
many other ways.
RECYCLING BINS:
Live Oak: There is a newspaper-
recycling bin at 305 Pinewood Drive,
Live Oak, just west of Johnson's
Appliance/Radio Shack.
Lee: Recycling bins are located at the
shelter at 1156 SE Bisbee Loop,
Madison (just South of Lee) for
newspapers, catalogs, paper, magazines
and broken down cardboard. All the
money goes to help the homeless
animals.
SPAYING AND NEUTERING:
Experts say the most important thing
people can do to help their pets is to get
them spayed or neutered. This means the
animals get an operation, to be sure they
can't have kittens or puppies. They are
asleep during the operation, so they
aren't scared or in pain.
Spaying and neutering are so
important because there are so many
animals needing care and not enough
homes or shelters for them.
One cat or dog can have many litters
in its life. Its kittens or puppies can have
many litters, too. This can end up
creating thousands of new cats and dogs.
Featured animals for adoption:
Remember, do not leave pets in
vehicles for any length of time due to the
heat and humidity or cold weather.

Shedding some light on reading comfort


Reading is an activity that people of all ages enjoy, and something that
is as much a part of daily life as eating or sleeping. Pouring through the
pages of the latest bestseller may be your perfect idea of relaxing on the
weekend. A favorite crossword or Sudoku puzzle book can pass the hour
during your commute home from work. A home-improvement idea
guide can help pave the way toward a kitchen remodel.
The trouble is, not all of your reading is done during the day or when
light is optimal. Many times busy schedules push leisure or required
reading into the evening or late-night hours, when leaving a bright
overhead light on can disturb others. However, reading in poor lighting
can strain eyes and prove bothersome.
A Bright Idea for Readers
Up until now, those who frequently enjoyed a book in bed or in dimly
lit situations, such as on a bus or airplane, had to use a little ingenuity to
illuminate their reading matter. A flashlight tucked on a shoulder, a pen
light balanced above an ear were some attempts to lighten up the
situation. Even clip-on booklights may have been used, but found
ineffective because they didn't provide much light and may have
featured a cord that needed to plug into a wall outlet. These options were
far from convenient. But the Periscope LED Book Light in a
Bookcover ends the frustration of reading in low-light situations.
The patented Periscope Book Light in a Bookcover eliminates all
cords, clips and clutter and lets you read what you want where you want
in all types of low-light reading environments all while protecting your
privacy. The handy lighting system is housed within a slip-on bookcover
(there are separate covers for hardcover and mass market paperback
books). Simply slip your book into the cover and pull up the telescoping
light, which automatically turns it on. The adjustable twin, wide-angle
LED light can be pivoted to focus just where you need it for maximum
reading comfort. Simply retract the lighting arm back into the book
cover spine to turn off the light and stow it away. The light is powered
by three AA batteries that deliver over 40 hours of continuous light, so
there are no cords or plugs to worry about.
The covers also come with an attached book mark and handy pockets,
so you'll never lose your place while reading and can store notes,
tickets, or other small items as well. All of these features are housed in
one convenient package that is just as portable as your favorite book.
Tips for Reading in Comfort
The makers of Periscope Book Light in a Bookcover suggest these tips
for additional comfort while reading.
Reading in low light will not severely damage the eyes, but it can
lead to eye strain. So use adequate lighting whenever possible. Eye
strain can produce symptoms, such as headaches, aching eyeballs,, fuzzy
vision, and drooping eyelids.
If you're straining to see the print in books it may be time for an eye
examination. An eye doctor may determine you need reading glasses or


check your current prescription.
While some people have no trouble reading in situations with plenty of ambient
noise, most people prefer a quiet spot. At home, set aside a place that is a reading
nook or serene sanctuary for reading.
To learn more about Periscope products, visit www.periscopelight.com. The book.
lights are readily available for paperback and hardcover books at Barnes and Noble
retailers and online at www.barnesandnoble.com.

Storm Surge a concern to coastal residents


One major cause of hurricane damage
is storm .surge. Storm surge is the rising
of the sea level due to the low pressure,
high winds, and high waves associated
with a hurricane as it makes landfall.
The storm surge can cause significant .
flooding and cost people their Jives if
they're caught unexpected.
Storm surge can be understood by
looking at the video below. The strong
winds blowing towards the shore help
push water towards shore on the right
side of the hurricane's direction of mo-
tion. This piling up contributes to most


of the coastal Ilooding.
N.mo. the central presiiie of a hurri-
cane is so low that the idclaive lack of
atmospheric weight above the c-c andm
eye %all causes., a bulge in the ocean
surface level. This effect is similar to
using a straw. When you use a straw,
-you decrease -he air pressure in the
straw, and the high pressure pushing
down on the rest of the drink pushes the
drink up the straw. Here it is the relative
higher pressure on the ocean around the
outside the hurricane that lifts the ocean
surface in the center.


With technology in its current state, forecasters can give residents in the path of hurri-
canes advanced warnings to help prevent casualties due to storm surge, strong winds, and
heavy rain, -- each of which claimed many lives during the first half of the century. Now,
more people are caught off guard by the tornadoes found in the spiral bands, causing
damage similar to that seen in the Midwest.

These tornadoes are also found close to or within the eye wall. Often these tornadoes oc-
cur in heavy rain storms, making them difficult, if not impossible, to see. Advances in radar
technology have given the public more lead time than before, but these twisters are still
very dangerous and can cause quite a bit of damage.

Heavy rain and flooding

a problem of any

tropical disturbance
Apart from the storm surge, heavy rainfall causes both
flash and long term flooding. Tropical storms and hurri-
canes are known to dump as much as a meter (about 3
feet) of rain in just a couple of days, creating big problems
for residents who believe they are safe just because they
do not live on ornnear the coast., n fact flooding kills more
people than the strong winds do. Here are some of the
rainfall totals which occurred in October of 1995 from the
landfall of Hurricane Opal.

Rainfall from Hurricane Opal (1995)
Ellyson, FL 15.45"
Evergreen, AL 8.10"
Peach Tree City, GA 7.66"
Mobile, AL 7.48"
Pensacola, FL 7;27"
Hurlburt Field, FL 6.64"
Atlanta, GA 6.59"
Fulton Co., GA 6.22"
Anniston, AL 6.09"
Ft Benning, GA 5.25"
Dobbins AFB, GA 5.14"

Data provided by T' 'C
After a hurricane has come inland, it does begin to de-
teriorate. However, it still produces a lot of rainfall. Even
when a tropical system is as weak as a depression, it is
still a very strong storm when compared to average thun-
derstorms.

Public Action


What do you do?

If your home is on or near the coastline where the hurricane's destructive forces will
affect it, pay close attention to what the local government and/or police force is rec-
ommending. You should also pay attention to radio and TV stations for the latest in-
formation.

If evacuating your home is recommended:
/ Heed'their warning!!
/ Plan ahead where you would go -- it may be beneficial to choose a few
places like an out of town friend's home or a designated shelter, etc.
/ Take the phone numbers of these places with you.
/ Take a road map in case the weather forces you onto unfamiliar roads.
/ Do not drive over standing water, as floods may have damaged the roads.
YOU DO NOT i-.IOW HOW DEEP THE WATER REALLY IS!!!


'-


If you are in the path of a
land-falling hurricane, you should


prepare


a supply kit containing:
/ A first aid kit and necessary medications.
/ Canned food and an opener, as this food lasts for long periods of time
without needing refrigeration.
/ Plenty of water. (The Red Cross recommends three gallons of water per
person to last three days.)
/ Flashlights, a battery powered radio, and extra batteries.
/ Raingear, sleeping bags, and protective clothing.

More complete information on this subject as well as how to best prepare your
house for a hurricane can be gathered by contacting your local Red Cross chapter.


When community evacuations become necessary, local officials provide information
to the public through the media. In some circumstances, other warning methods, such
as sirens or telephone calls, also are used. Additionally, there may be circumstances un-
der which you and your family feel threatened or endangered and you need to leave
your home, school, or workplace to avoid these situations.
The amount of time you have to leave will depend on the hazard. If the event is a
weather condition, such as a hurricane that can be monitored, you might have a day or
two to get ready. However, many disasters allow no time for people to gather even the
most basic necessities, which is why planning ahead is essential.
Evacuation: More Common than You Realize
Evacuations are more common than many people realize. Hundreds of times each
year, transportation and industrial accidents release harmful substances, forcing thou-
sands of people to leave their homes. Fires and floods cause evacuationseven more
frequently. Almost every year, people along the Gulf and Atlantic coasts evacuate in
the face of approaching hurricanes.
Ask local authorities about emergency evacuation routes .and see if maps may are
available with evacuation routes marked.

,-. .'. ."l'- ,. "-.- Ji W'-\ ^


Always:

Keep a full tank of gas in your car if an
evacuation seems likely. Gas stations
may be closed during emergencies and
unable to pump gas during power out-
ages. Plan to take one car per family to
reduce congestion and delay.

Make transportation arrangements with
friends or your local government if you
donot own a car.

Listen to a battery-powered radio and
follow local evacuation instructions.

Gather your family and go if you are in-
structed to evacuate immediately.

Leave early enough.to avoid being
trapped by severe weather.

Follow recommended evacuation routes.
Do not take shortcuts; they may be
blocked.

Be alert for washed-out roads and
bridges. Do not drive into flooded areas.

Stay away from downed power lines.


If time permits:

Gather your disaster supplies kit.


Wear sturdy shoes and clothing that
provides some protection, such as long
'pants, long-sleeved shirts, and a cap.

Secure your home.*


Let others know where you are going.

Facts and falsehoods about lightning

Mother Nature offers many wonders that are a specta-
cle to behold. Ranking among some of the more awe-in-
spiring is lightning. Lightning strikes the earth rough-
ly 1,800 times at any given moment.
While lightning is certainly a beautiful vision illumi-
nating the sky, its immense power can have a downside,
including the potential for destruction and even death.
Lightning is five times as hot as the sun in every one-
inch diameter bolt. In the U.S., lightning kills more peo-
ple than hurricanes and tornadoes, combined.. Only
floods are more deadly. According to Underwriters Lab-
oratories, lightning also accounts for more than one bil-
lion dollars annually in structural damage to buildings in
the U.S.
Considering lightning inspires awe and wonder, and
also some fear ... it is beneficial to separate fact from
fiction when it comes to lightning safety.
1. People are poor lightning conductors.
Fiction: The human body is a better conductor than in-
sulating building materials, water, and many metallic
systems. The body is over 90 percent fluid, which is why
sticking a finger in an electric socket or even experienc-
ing static electricity when touching a doorknob can
shock you.
2. If you are caught outdoors, it can be safe to seek
shelter from lightning in a car.
Fact: A vehicle that is fully-enclosed with metal can
provide better protection against lightning than standing
outdoors in a storm.
. 3. Lightning rods attract lightning.
Fiction: A lightning protection system simply inter-
cepts a lightning strike and provides a safe path to
ground for discharging the dangerous electricity.
4.Surge arresters, suppressors and "whole-house pro-
tectors" can protect my home.
Fiction: Surge protection devices are important com-
ponents of a complete system to protect incoming utility
lines against infiltration, but can do nothing to protect a
structure against direct lightning strikes. Surge protection
must be installed in conjunction with a structural light-
ning rod system (air terminals, bonding and.grounding)

Lightning danger

on the water
Boating, swimming and other water sports are some of
the more enjoyable recreational activities, provided safety
is intermixed with fun.
There are a variety of dangers lurking below the surface
of the water and from water itself. But many people don't
realize the dangers beyond the water, notably lightning.
According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration (NOAA), an estimated 40 million light-
.ning strikes account for nearly 100 deaths annually in the
United States, making lightning considerably more harm-
ful thari hurricanes and sharks. Being completely exposed
on a boat or another type of craft, such as a surfboard or
water skis, makes water recreation dangerous when a
storm is predicted. Sailboats with their tall masts are more
susceptible to lightning hits than powerboats. But light-
ning can also funnel through the electronic systems on any
boat. The National Marine Electronics Association dealers
report substantial amounts of lightning damage to big-
boat electronics every year.
According to marine experts, there are no ways to actu-
ally protect a boat from lightning, just ways to limit the
damage if a strike should occur. Actually, keeping a boat
docked during storms that have the potential for lightning
is the only surefire way to ensure passenger safety.

How Risky Is Lightning?
It's important to understand some fundamentals about
lightning to realize the danger involved. Lightning occurs
when the difference between the positive and negative
charges, the electrical potential, becomes great enough to
overcome the resistance of the insulating air and forces a
conductive path between the positive and negative
charges. Lightning will generally seek the easiest path to

Avoid boating or entering the water when strong lightning-
producing storms are predicted.

the ground. Therefore it tends to strike the highest point in
the immediate area. On the flat surface of the water, that
is generally a boat. Most smaller crafts are not made from
metal. They are made from lightweight materials such as
fiberglass. Therefore, if lightning strikes, it will search for
any path to ground and the human body may be the best
route.
Radio antennae, fishing rods and' even lightning pro-
tection system rods themselves may be targets for
lightning strikes. Again, reason enough to keep off the wa-
ter if lightning is forecast.

Medical Help
CPR may be required to rescue a person who has been
struck by lightning. Prompt artificial breathing and CPR
can jump-start the heart and lungs should they fail after a
strike. Remember, there is no danger to touching a person
who has been struck by lightning the current has al-
ready passed through to the ground or water. Keep a level
head and provide emergency care.


A little preparation

MAKES A BIG DIFFERENCE.
Bottled water. A flashlight and radio. Fresh batteries. Having the
little things ready can make a big difference when a storm hits.

PET PLAN
Contact your local veterinarian or animal shel-,
ter for information on preparing your pets for an
emergency.
A Jnmumals brought to a pet shelter are required
.' -- ~-' to hax e: proper identification collar and rabies
tag. proper identification on all belongings, a
carrier or cage, a leash, an ample supply of

Walk your pet, on a leash until they become re-
oriented to their home often familiar scents and
landmarks may be altered and pets could easily be confused and become lost. Also
downed power lines, high water due to flooding and debris can all pose a threat
for animals after a disaster.
If pets cannot be found after a disaster, contact the local animal control/shelter
office to find out where lost animals can be re-
covered.
SThe next few of days following a disaster the
behavior of your pets may change. Normally qui-
Set and friendly pets may become aggressive or de-
la gr a fensive. Watch animals closely. Leash dogs and
n e ^. place them in a fenced yard with access to shelter

tial occurrence with lightning, many insurance compa-
nies will deny second or third lightning claims and many
will non-renew a policy after a lightning claim is en-
tered.
Since a single bolt of lightning can carry over 100 mil-
lion volts of electricity (enough power to rip through a
roof, explode walls of brick and concrete and ignite
fires), homeowners may want to consider the security
and peace of mind that a lightning protection system of-
fers. A professionally installed lightning protection sys-
tem provides a safe path to channel lightning's electrical
energy into the earth. The Lightning Protection Institute
(LPI), a not-for-profit nationwide group founded in 1955
to promote lightning safety, awareness and education,
stresses that homeowners should only use experienced
contractors to install protection systems. LPI states that
the contractor should be reputable, use UL-listed materi-
als and be LPI-certified in lightning protection.
"It is important to have an experienced professional in-
stall the lightning protection system," says Bud VanSick-
le, executive director for LPI. "Contacting a certified
professional ensures safety and expertise to save con-
sumers time and money."
The Lightning Protection Institute offers a list of cer-
tified contractors, along with information regarding the
national safety standards for lightning protection installa-
tion. Visit the LPI Web site at www.lightning.org for
more information.

This Is a reduced version of the chart used to track hurricanes at the National Hurricane Center


I
a at S i C4 '
A hurricane is a type of tropical cyclone, the generic term for a low pressure sys-
tem that generally forms in the tropics. A typical cyclone is accompanied by thunder-
storms, and in the Northern Hemisphere, a counterclockwise circulation of winds near
the earth's surface.
All Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico coastal areas are subject to hurricanes or tropical
storms. Parts of the Southwest United States and the Pacific Coast experience heavy
rains and floods each year from hurricanes spawned off Mexico. The Atlantic hurri-
cane season lasts from June to November, with the peak season from mid-August to
late October.
Hurricanes can cause catastrophic damage to coastlines and several hundred miles
inland. Winds can exceed 155 miles per hour. Hurricanes and tropical storms can also
spawn tornadoes and microbursts, create storm surges along the coast, and cause ex-
tensive damage from heavy rainfall.
Hurricanes are classified into five categories based on their wind speed, central
pressure, and damage potential (see chart). Category Three and higher hurricanes are
considered major hurricanes, though Categories One and Two are still extremely dan-
gerous and warrant your full attention.
Sw are the Hurricane Categories Determnined'

SAFFIR-SIMPSON HURRICANE SCALE
SCALE SUSTAINED DAMAGE STORM SURGE
NUMBER WINDS
(CATEGORY) (MPH)
1 74-95 Minimal: Unanchored mobile homes, 4-5 feet
vegetation and signs.
2 96-110 Moderate: All mobile homes, roofs, 6-8 feet
small crafts, flooding.
3 111-130 Extensive: Small buildings, 9-12 feet
low-lying roads cut off.
4 131-155 Extreme: Roofs destroyed, trees 13-18 feet
down, roads cut off, mobile homes
destroyed. Beach homes flooded.
5 More
than 155 Catastrophic: Most buildings Greater
destroyed. Vegetation destroyed, than 18 feet
Major roads cut off.,
Homes flooded.

Hurricanes can produce widespread torrential rains. Floods are the deadly and de-
structive result. Slow moving storms and tropical storms moving into mountainous re-
gions tend to produce especially heavy rain. Excessive rain can trigger landslides or
mud slides, especially in mountainous regions. Flash flooding can occur due to in-
tense rainfall. Flooding on rivers and streams may persist for several days or more af-
ter the storm.
Between 1970 and 1999, more people lost their lives from freshwater inland flood-
ing associated with land falling tropical cyclones than from any other weather hazard
related to tropical cyclones;
How are Hurricanes Named?
Since 1953, Atlantic tropical storms have been named from lists originated by the
National Hurricane Center and now maintained and updated by an international com-
mittee of the World Meteorological Organization. The
lists featured only women's names.until 1979. After that,
men's and women's names were alternated. Six lists are '"M E R G
used in rotation. Thus, the 2001 lists will be used again
in 2007.
The only time there is a change in the list is if a storm
is so deadly or costly that the continued use of the.name
would be inappropriate for reasons of sensitivity. When
this occurs, the name is stricken from the list and anoth-
er name is selected to replace it.
Sometimes names are changed. Lorenzo replaced Luis I S w l Itn I
and Michelle replaced Marilyn.

LEGAL SERVICES
DIRECTORY

m Cid /oa faoaw?
More than 70 countries across the globe now have some form of freedom
of information legislation. Such laws vary by country, but typically
provide public access to government information or records. In the United
States, the Freedom of Information Act became law in 1966 under then-
President Lyndon Johnson. The Act was then updated with the Electronic
Freedom of Information Act amendments under President Bill Clinton in
1996. While the act only applied to federal agencies, all of the states and
territories have statutes requiring the disclosure of information by state and
local governments. The United Kingdom enacted their own Freedom of
Information Act in 2000, while Canada's Access to Information Act in
1983 allowed citizens access to government-controlled information. The
trailblazer for freedom of information legislation is believed to be Sweden,
who enacted their Freedom of the Press Act in 1766, though the. act at that
time was far more limited that the more open acts of today, including
since-updated laws in Sweden. 43614B-F
